This is a replica of the famous Dancing Faunus found in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. In Roman paganism and its mythology, Faunus was the horned god of the forest, plains and fields; when he made cattle fertile he was called Inuus. He came to be equated in literature with the Greek god Pan. Faunus was one of the oldest Roman deities, known as the di indigetes, and according to the epic poet Virgil, he was a legendary king of the Latins, who came with his people from Arcadia, and whose shade was consulted as a god of prophecy, under the name of Fatuus, with oracles in the sacred grove of Tibur, around the well Albunea, and on the Aventine Hill in ancient Rome itself
